If you end up spawning on the side that is on the KorTac Loading Area, you should head to the courtyard. It is easier to intercept enemies that way and not get trapped while heading to the Warehouse. If you spawn in the SpecGru Parking Lot, you might want to have long-range guns so you can use the area to your advantage.

If you have long-range weapons, try to stay outside so you can take advantage of the area and not get caught off-guard. The Courtyard and Patio is where most fights will take place in this new map. If you need some extra kills or you are feeling confident, take charge and head to this area. SMGs will be very good on this map while you are inside the buildings.
